Masala Roti Recipe


Masala Roti is a delicious variety of Indian flatbread and a huge favorite in my house. Not only are masala rotis easy to prepare, but they are also very healthy & extremely nutritious. I add a little ground flaxseed to my rotis just for a little extra nutritional value but this of course, is totally optional. Ground flaxseeds or flaxseed flour can easily be found in any organic or health food store.

Masala rotis are absolutely perfect for picnics & are also very kid-friendly as they make great healthy snacks. As a child, I vividly remember eating freshly made masala rotis on long train & bus journeys while traveling through India. It was definitely love at first bite and I haven’t stopped since.


MASALA ROTI RECIPE (Spiced Indian Flatbread)

Ingredients:

2 cups of whole-wheat flour (atta)
a few tbsp of all-purpose flour, as needed
½ cup fresh cilantro leaves, finely minced
1” piece of fresh ginger, peeled and finely grated
2-3 small green Thai chilies, finely chopped (to taste)
½ tsp ground coriander powder
½ tsp ground cumin powder
1¼ cups of water (as needed)
2 tbsp ground flaxseeds or flaxseed flour, optional
salt to taste
butter

METHOD:

Keep aside a little all-purpose flour for dusting. In a large mixing bowl, gradually add the water to the whole-wheat flour (atta) and mix well until you have stiff dough. The easiest way to do this is by using clean hands. Don’t forget to add the cilantro, ginger, green chilies, ground cumin powder, ground coriander powder, salt & ground flaxseeds. Knead the dough until it yields a smooth texture and consistency. Cover with a slightly damp cloth and let the dough rest for 10-15 minutes.

Knead the dough again and divide into 8-10 equal portions. Roll the individual portions into round balls (golf ball size). Take 1 round ball at a time and flatten it into a round disk using your palms. Dust your work area and rolling pin with a little bit of flour to prevent sticking. Gently roll the flattened ball into a circle, making sure the roti is even in thickness. Keep rolling until you have created a thin round roti approximately 6 inches in diameter.

Heat a large frying pan on medium heat, add a little butter (cooking spray may be used) and carefully place the masala roti in the pan. After a minute or so, turn the roti. Both sides should be golden brown. Brush with a little butter and serve hot as is or with a little yogurt & your favorite Indian pickles & chutneys.

I usually get about 8-10 rotis from the recipe above ☺.
